Hi everyone! I’m new to the forum and wanted to say I’ve enjoyed viewing and reading all the post here and decided to finally join.
I’ve been oil painting for about a year now and it started as a date night thing to do with my girlfiriend painting along with Bob Ross episodes and using his methods. I soon grew bored of doing fantasy landscapes and wanted to develop my own style. I find Marks teachings and approach to be very helpful in learning the secrets to better paintings. (And its free!)
That being said, I’ve yet to find the courage to attempt a portrait or still life, and mainly work from photographs I find appealing off free license websites. I’ve done 3 paintings since moving away from Bob Ross and will hopefully be posting them in the forums for everyones enjoyment/support/critiques. In the year ive been oil painting ive completed approximately 30-40 paintings. (A lot of Ross landscapes) Anyways, cheers!
